Derek,
>just can't write ..C.. for beans...
Who'd want to when there's FB about? :-)

One of the probs though is all this Apple Source which spoils
the FB feast!

Robert Covington passed on to me, with a sort of non-disclosure agreement,
Mars' psuedo code which Mars had originally taken from Apple.

I tried adding it (with your help, Derek, on the toolbox side) to the
MOVIE-to-PICT program (available at FutureBASIC.org) which I put together
(with Jamin's help) to try to make it a PICT-2-MOVIE-2-PICT.

But could I make it work? No. The code is available to anyone who
wants it but I should warn you when I passed it to Robert
it killed his hard disk - so he says :-x

Would you (or anybody else) like to try? Esp now that Robert has
written the Spec and published Mars' psuedo-code...
